Car Rental in New York with Bookingclik: Car rental desks are clearly signed at New York JFK, La Guardia and Newark Airport. Although Newark is actually across the Hudson River in New Jersey, it's just as easy to get into Manhattan compared to the other two major airports.
It is accessible to drive through all five Boroughs on New York City; Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Islands and the Bronx. Although we'd recommend taking the free Staten Island ferry from Battery Park which takes you past the Statue of Liberty.
New York City makes up part of a Tri-State, between the States of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut (Pennsylvania is also within reach). The roads between all three have some beautiful drives and are easy to navigate. Beware the Lincoln Tunnel between Manhattan and the New Jersey turnpike! Make sure you are in the correct lane.
There is no nice way to put it: driving in Manhattan is a scary, busy place! Taxis honking, pedestrians seemingly crossing wherever they want, cyclists appearing by your side. Public transport, or just walking, is fantastic in New York City. Use that rental car to visit neighbouring States or to see the beautiful Upstate New York. Follow the Hudson River north and see the hippy town of Woodstock, or go waterfall hunting in the Catskill Mountains. You could even go on an epic 6 hour road trip to see Niagara Falls.

The city's nickname, The Big Apple, came from horseracing! "Big Apple" was a term used for a large horseracing prize, and was the name of a column in a local New York newspaper. Try and get a day out at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens.
The famous yellow cabs of New York City were not always yellow. In 1907 the first gasoline motorcar taxis were red and green, and changed to yellow in 1912.
Central Park, which dominates Manhattan in New York City, is actually larger than the country of Monaco! The winding paths of the 843 acre park take in the most beautiful scenery, from the Castle to lakes, to glorious fields of grass (plus there are 26 baseball fields!). But there is only one intentionally straight path in the whole park - The Mall, which runs between mid-park from 66th to 72nd Streets and is a quarter of a mile long.
